fixed
Bugfixes
  • All language names should be displayed in the correct Confluence language now. Please note that this was a Confluence bug.
  • The display of search results in the "Custom User Search" macro has been corrected. Previously it could happen that they were positioned incorrectly on the screen.
  • When using a custom language pack to translate profile field and category names, the system's default language is now used as a fallback when no translation exists for a user's language.
  • Until now, the OrgCharts did not show users when the capitalization of the user profile field was done incorrectly (as in: different from the actual user name). This has been fixed to use a case-insensitive lookup. Superior and subordinate users are now displayed properly, even if "JaneDoe" is entered as "janedoe".
  • We fixed an issue with file uploads to Confluence pages failing on rare occasions.
  • We also fixed an issue with Oracle databases that prevented displaying any events in the system.
  • Sometimes, pop-ups were positioned way off, for example when mentioning someone. This has been corrected in the new version of Linchpin Theme.
  • We also fixed some optical issues with the Linchpin Theme plugin.
  • We have fixed an optical issue concerning the "Cover Stories" macro in combination with Bitvoodoo's Navitabs.
  • We resolved a bug that caused attachments to break on edit (only affected Confluence < 6.15).
  • We resolved a bug that broke @-Mentions on edit.
  • Addressed a bug causing the configuration not to load

Improvements
  • Anonymous Access
    : We further improved anonymous access to your Linchpin Intranet and added a bunch of error handling mechanisms as well as specific hints and customized information for anonymous users.
  • Data Center Approval:
    Linchpin Intranet Suite versions 1.1.5 and above are officially approved for use with Confluence Data Center by Atlassian. Since this is the first feature release after the approval we just want to remind you of this fact once again (Lächeln)
  • You can now insert the Content Responsibility macro in blueprints.
  • You can now add profile fields of the type "phone" to the user profile fields modules in Onboarding and Assistant. Until now only the field types "text", "select" and "multiselect" were supported. Thus a further step towards better maintained and high-quality user data is possible.

  • With some custom CSS, you can now display the date a blog post has been last modified. See our admin documentation for details.
